Next week we will upgrade our existing social business infrastructure from IBM Connections Version 4.0 to Version 4.5. Which does NOT include the new file management capabilities like nested folders. Nobody told us before. Not IBM. Not the system integrator. Nested folders are one of the main requests from the customers key users. So we need to license and install the required IBM Connections Content Manager add on (the artist formely known as Filenet), Version 4.5 of course. Which is available, but needs to run on a separate machine. Which does NOT include IBM Docs for collaborative content creation and editing. Which everybody expected to ship with IBM Connections 4.5. Because everybody who tested this on Greenhouse and saw the colorful slides believed in it. But this feature requires licensing and installating IBM Docs Version 4.5. Or Version 1.0.3. Which is currently not available. Maybe in three months. Current version would require some components running on Linux Red Hat, other components on Windows - and the document converter is still far from usable. Today IBM released IBM Connections App Version 4.1 to support the features from IBM Connections Version 4.5. Which does not contain the promised "dropbox style" sync capabilities. Maybe this will come in App Version 4.5? So what will we have after upgrading to IBM Connections Version 4.5? A new Websphere Version. Ahh. And @mentions. Ohh.You need to understand. This is not Web 2.0 tools simply transfered to Enterprise 2.0. This is enterprise software. This is IBM. Still think IBM Connections is one of the best E2.0 suites out there in the market. Hopefully IBM will not IBMify this solution.
... jeder Versuch, Mails durch ausgefuchste Systeme zu sortieren, macht nur Scherereien. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommen Forscher von IBM. Moment mal: Ist das nicht jene Firma, die der Welt Lotus Notes bescherte?-> SPON über den täglichen Umgang mit der Mailflut und die Erkenntnisse der IBM.
... The news feed from Facebook or LinkedIn is one of the first ways people encounter surprising information that expands understanding. You might see that someone in your network is having a party, getting married, or has gotten a new job at a company you want to do business with or left a company he or she had been at for years. In a consumer environment, Amazon’s book recommendations give us new ideas about relevant content. In both contexts we find out information we were not looking for. That’s what I mean by surprise, an expansion of what is on my mind. I distinguish this from serendipity, which is having the good fortune to encounter something beneficial. Modern systems intend to create surprises instead of leaving them to chance. Contrast this with most of the business tools we use. There is almost zero potential for surprise in most of our environments. Our email inboxes are about the only place we can truly be surprised by something. In most other business applications, we get answers to questions that we have asked...-> Read on
What that means for IBM in 2011 is that this year they’ve decided to fully embrace social business - and to not only eat their own dogfood but to breed their own dogs. That’s the level of their commitment. ... Their level of commitment is astounding and potentially game changing. Why? Because a $100 billion company is driving all their resources into transforming their company into a social business. They aren’t just selling it, they’re doing it and evangelizing it and marshalling whatever they have to so that it will be globally hugged.Good thoughts on Lotusphere 2011 on -> zdnet
